Please note: This is a past exhibit that is no longer installed in the park.

Description:

The Parking Meters Project consists of five decommissioned parking meters, each outfitted with a small diorama, installed in Rockaway Park. The meters are installed at the eastern end of the parking lot between Beach 94th Street and Cross Bay Boulevard. Conrad Stojak works with obsolete New York parking meters, many of which can be found out on the city streets and in warehouses, by upcycling them into public works of art. Each one is an individualistic, self-contained micro-world depicting New York City scenes in the form of urban dioramas that are community specific, including a miniature Whalemina sculpture, which was destroyed during Hurricane Sandy.
